Improving the Impact of Leadership Development | Brandon Hall

Leadership & Culture

This report provides a review of the current state of leadership development as well as analysis, critical questions organizations must answer, and tactics for how leadership development can be improved. The study presents the finding that less than 60% of organizations believe their leaders possess the competencies and emotional intelligence to successfully drive business goals over the next couple of years. Driving this concern are four factors. 1) Succession management is inadequate, 2) High-potential identification/development is not effective, 3) Top leadership is not sufficiently active in developing leaders, 4) Insufficient focus on building foundational leadership skills (including emotional intelligence). While the report provides various insights, pages 21-22 provide a list of questions that organizations can ask and answer in order to overcome these challenges.
